in self-defense, diana. but this case has captivated so many people following trials in the courts and because of the jury. she stabbed him 22 times. cut his throat. shot him. went to his home to do all this and maintaines it was because she was the victim of do mest uk violence here. what are some of the reactions in and around there now that we know a verdict has come down? >> well, you know, i've been hanging out outside the courthouse this entire time and talking to spectators an find oing out what they have to say. i can tell you the vast majority of people outside the courthouse are convinced of her guilt. they will not be satisfied unless it is murder 1. they have told me they feel as though the prs koutor juan martinez was travis alex and are's voice from beyond the grif and that he was doing justice for travis alexander and they will not be satisfied unless jodi arias gets the death penalty. i've ahad a lot of exchanges on twitter. this has been discussed over social media and many people that reached out to me -- >> i think we just lost diana -- we hope to get her back --
an effort to take the temperature of public defense across the country and i visited a lot of public defenders offices, watched a lot of trials and discovered that there was a crisis in the court's that probably all of you are well aware of and really tried to dig in and find out what was going on and where all these problems were arising that we didn't have equal justice 50 years after gideon. what i would like to do is read a little section of the book first and talk for a few minutes and read a brief section. so, the section i'm going to read is in the conclusion because it's about public defenders in a conference i went to with public defenders since i thought there were probably quite a few of you in the audience, you might find it musing. i don't know. the national defenders association opened the conference in washington dc in 2011 addressed the crowd of 300 public defenders with a room with space for many more. does society demonize you? of course. do they suggest you are working for the wrong people? of course they do do they suggest you are work for thugs? of course the
. defense was getting out of control. andhe came to my defense, the president understood that this was not intentional. i was not sabotaging the program. thegan to realize that things that my old boss, the congressman, the third-party candidate in the 1980 campaign, said, "you cannot massively cut taxes and balance the budget, too." i thought that to be done through on his mathematics. by then, i was realizing it could not be done. it was pulled apart. the teams of horses were going in different directions, but i was for the direction. i was totally on board with the idea of shrinking the government, lowering the taxes as far as we could, taking the waste out of spending and reforming entitlements. but i knew we were going to have to make compromises and adjustments and probably make some deals with the democrats, and that is where the baker wing was. couldsed to think you govern by waving. ronald reagan like up close every day? >> he was a very amicable guy. a tremendous personality. i have been in politics and was in politics of long time. egos ofworld of massive people
